Posted:OK, so here's a question that I though I would post cause it's been making me crazy.

There's this tree that grows in the desert. After a few years it secretes this oil substance that is flammable. After awhile the tree just spontaneously combusts and burns up. Then a new tree grows in its spot(kinda pheonix like huh?). I saw it on the discovery channel or something. I wanted to know if any of you knew the name of the tree.
Thanks people ubbrollsmile

Gather your harps from the willow trees, dust off the ancient strings. Call the bards and prophets, let them sing healing and freedom. Let light and love flow from the strings, colors of revelation.

Posted:A self-combustible tree. Snap. Couldn't even guess but now I'm curious so I poked around. There's a tree discussion group: http://www.treeguide.com/forum/default.asp?b=2
Lemme know what you find out.

Desert Trees

It might help if you could remember which desert area the show was aired at. I had found the Mojave(sp) desert listing of plant life online.

Hope that helps smile
